Baked beans are a handy standby when you are in a hurry, so always make sure you have cans of beans in your pantry. Beans are an excellent source of protein and fiber as well. Shobha suggests that you serve this dish with rice or bread. She adds that it is especially good served at a barbeque!
A SPECIAL NOTE: When a recipe calls for curry powder or masala use the mix described in the box labelled, A BASIC CURRY POWDER.
Several recipes call for curry leaves. These leaves add an aromatic flavor, but are not essential to the meal. It you do not have it in the area where you live, ignore it and go ahead with the rest of the recipe.
Although baked beans are a handy standby, it is a delicious meal at any time. Add it to roti, or puri, combine with a salad and you have a complete meal in 30 minutes.
